    It's a lot when you consider the skill level it takes to perform those minimum wage jobs.

    No it is not__Mostly because the "Minimum Wage" was intended to be a "Fair Wage" not a "Living Wage"_

    People should take this into account before dropping out of school and accept it as the consequences of their bad choices_

    Really now people; expecting a high-skill pay-check for working a low-skill job is a bit asinine, don't ya think?!

    And if it happens to be a college graduate working a low-skill job then they should be thankful for the minimum wage paycheck they receive to tide them over until they can advance to the position they've been educated to fill_

    But if the job market is a mess, try electing candidates to public office who will make policies to fix rather than hinder it_
    And those candidates would be...?

    Then they should have better skills, shouldn't they?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Capitalist Candidates that support the Constitution, promote small government, and believe in The American Dream that once made the United States the greatest, wealthiest, freest, most powerful nation in the history of the human race, that people from every corner of the world wanted to be a part of_

    Fill our capital with these candidates and there will be a chicken in every pot in America_

    Yup.

    Beef will be for VERY special occasions.

    And would we get a chicken a week or only monthly? Each or per family?

    Hmmm;
    it sounds as if you might be a little bit skeptical of my prediction_
    Well;
    if you want to be dependent on government for life, elect socialists_
    But;
    if you want to live free and be self-sufficient for life, elect capitalists_
    Because;
    whatever you put in determines how much you will get back in the end_
    And;
    some of us expect to get more back than government's meager handouts_
